There's just one important difference in the computer realm.

The user can understand, read the source code of a program,
troubleshoot/bisect FLOSS and even fork discontinued software after
gaining the required knowledge or the user can rely on a
relatively huge community. 

Whatever knowledge the user or even the hugest community has got,
there's more or less nothing that could be done, when using restricted
software. The user needs to trust business people, who could decide
more or less what ever they want, at any time.
